Enhanced germplasm for crown rot in winter cereals through application of molecular markers

Plain text source: 
While commercial varieties of bread wheat and durum wheat with adequate levels of crown rot resistance are not available, other wheats carrying a level of resistance or tolerance to this disease have been identified... The markers will be used as flags to detect the presence of resistance genes in populations of wheat plants derived from crosses between resistant lines and elite varieties... Readily detected genetic markers are identified that indicate the presence of genes that resist growth of, or provide tolerance to crown rot disease...
